Someone on this list wrote : "but the most frustating aspect of my job is to
see wasted talent"

When I was fifteen years younger, fear of life and lack of selfconfidence
draw me on the "good way" : studies, technical and scientific professionŠ,
the safety way towards a "career with good pay"Š even though I almost never
found it !
Because ART was deep in my heartŠ
I have to thank Life, or world wide gods, for preventing me from smothering
the precious sparks of creation inside me. Maybe I went a long way roundŠ
before I decide to blow on embers and stir up the "art fire".
Talent being wasted ? I really wonder.
It seems as if Life is always trying to get you back on "your very way".
As if nothing had happened, while you are settled in a so confortable way of
life - or a standard one - Life makes you crossing your talent again and
again, patiently waiting for you to wake up and take the golden opportuny. I
think it looks like conjunction of stars and planetsŠ
Whaterver the way you are going through, I think Talent is never
definitevely wasted.
And when I look back at the pasted years, where talent was sleeping inside
me, I almost learnt tons of things that are, in present time, trully
contributing to my life and to my creativity.
Maybe teachers do have the mission to turn student's sparks of creativity
into a fire. Here and now. But don't forget about embers. You just have to
blow on carefullyŠ
I am an independant teacher and my students are betweenn 7 and 70 years old
! Every student : UNBORN TALENT. Not wasted.
I wish so. And I do the best to open student's eyes and reveal their
"talent", howhever old they may be. I know creativity is nicely waitingŠ But
sometimes it is not so relax to wake it up !
Holly Patience help you !
